Make-up Monday | Birthday Make-up

Hey Beauties...
So this Monday was my birthday (7th) so I wanted to do something a little different to what I normally wear and make more of an effort then usual. 

Normally the weather stays warm till about a couple of days before my birthday then it drops but this year surprisingly it was actually warm on my birthday which did throw me a little as I didn't know if I should embrace the autumn make-up or cling on to summer a little longer.
I decided to embrace the autumn and this is what I came up with.

So for the base make-up I decided to bring out my more 'high end' make-up which I haven't been using much of lately. 
To start with I used Garnier Moisture Match for Dull Skin just to prep my skin to give it a healthier glow. For foundation I used my much loved Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation in 5.0. Concealer I opted for my MAC Prolongwear Concealer which I mix with Simple Kind To Eye Balm.

To finish off my face I used Sleek Brow Kit in Dark to fill in my brows enhancing my natural shape. Just to add a flush of colour to my cheeks I used Sleek Blush in Pixi Pink.

For the eyes I started by priming them using Urban Decay Primer Potion. Then for the eye colours I decided to use Mac Eye Shadow in Cranberry and my new Crown Brush 88 Shimmer Palette (discount code at end of post)

1. So to start with I use 'Mac Cranberry' all over the lid.
2. I then used the gold colour from the 88 shimmer palette, just in the inner corner of my eyes blending into the cranberry colour.
3. After that I took the silvery/gold colour from the palette and blended that into the crease of my eye.
4. Lastly I use the coal/black colour and applied that to the outer corners blending into the crease a little and really smoking the eye out.

To finish the look of I used Collection Extreme Tip Liner in Black to line my upper lash line.
For mascara I used Max Factor Wild Mega Volume Mascara and then a coat of Urban Decay Super Curl Mascara for really nice long, thick lashes.

I decided to keep the lips simple and just opted for Mac Shy Girl.
